The inhabitants of Clint City are mobilizing in response to the Frozn clan’s invasion. Sheryl is cooling the passions of the clan members with her whip lashes, while Tolliver and his dog track down the Frozn not yet engaged in battle. Lying in ambush on a ledge of Mount Glatz, Bankee is covering the movements of the Frozn and providing strike support. And the reckless Haaken's sure gonna need it, after throwing himself into the fray without even stopping to consider that he’s completely outnumbered by the enemy...
@ghelas, its not that their underpowered but for the likes of standard they have no decent line up, and they have no variety, they are old and boring and nothing fresh has come to them since Ojibway really
The fact is that a Roots half deck is still in the top tier of ELO, and they can still be used well past 1400, unlike many other clans at the moment. Giving them another card would just increase the amount of Roots, which is boring and will lead to the recycle of decks.
ELO at the moment isn't in a bad place, barring a few weeks where one clan completely dominates; a few adjustments and I reckon we'll have the fairest ELO seen in a long time
Roots literally has everything a clan needs, except for a great ELO-playable 2* card. And if a 2* that was too good showed up, it would disturb the delicate balance of UR ELO...
DR? Check, two great ELO-playable ones.
Solid 3*s? Check, I don't even want to try to count them all.
Solid pill forcers/round winners? Yep, check those 3* cards...
4 and 5* cards that can single-handedly determine the course of the game? Yep, there's Gretchen and Ojibway... And Amanie is really no slouch, either.
I'm so glad to see a few reasonable people speaking up and saying that they don't need some huge, epic release! A 2* that does decent damage, even situationally, would make the clan slightly OP in ELO. Another solid 3* would be redundant. A 4* wall? Doesn't really make sense for a clan with such great DR... Anything halfway decent with 8 power? Nope, it would be OP in any draw that also had Noodile Cr in it...
The reason Roots haven't been getting any releases is because they are really, really, really hard to balance, guys. And that is because they are already very good. If you don't see them much in ELO, it just means your ELO score isn't high enough.
I agree with fathul.huda.94 xD Does even someone read the messages before they let them through in the public threads?
Now seriously, ghelas is perfectly right. A sweet balanced but good 2* is everything they need. And from today, this becomes uninteresting anyway, because the new LD will be released!
Roots really only has good 3*'s.
In type extended, I'd say that they have some variety. Of the really good ones, I'd say Macumba, Shakra, Kiki, Rosen, Ojibway, maybe Amanie, maybe Gretchen, and especially Kiki Cr show their type extended respectable cards.
They have lack of cards however. While most clans have over 40, Roots still has about 38.
Main problem is in elo. Only useable 2*'s are Jeto, Arno, and Miken Moose. Arno is the only really good one, and he's banned. Considerable number of banned higher stars too...
Ghelas explained it perfect there is nothing wrong with them 1300+ is where you see them most. People dont understand how important having your ability is in elo,low star cards rely on the ability alot like Ulu Watu whats the point of having high power if you arent doing any damage? Eddie is shut down completly
